Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.




In this document the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (Bureau) seeks comment on a request filed by the King County, Washington E-911 Program Office for assistance in resolving a conflict related to the implementation of wireless Phase I Enhanced 911 (E911) service in the State of Washington. The King County Request states that King County and several other counties in Washington State have ordered Phase I service from wireless carriers operating in the State and that the Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) in these counties are capable of receiving and utilizing Phase I information over their existing E911 networks. According to the request, some carriers have agreed to implement Phase I service only if King County and the several other requesting counties pay for some or all of certain network and data base components associated with the delivery of the Phase I service.

King County requests that the Bureau clarify whether the funding of certain of the network and data base components of Phase I service, and the interface of these components to the existing E911 system, are the responsibility of the wireless carriers or the PSAPs.
